History Making Air Show & Bad Penny Puzzle Premiere
Come to Windsor Airport this Saturday, August 2 from 9-6 for a rare look at one of the world’s last two flying Lancasters.
The Canadian Historical Aircraft Association ( CH2A ) is having a fly-in display of the Hamilton Lancaster and visiting Spitfire from Ottawa along side Windsor’s own Lancaster (Bad Penny) and other historical aircraft.
Local author, Glen Mitchell, will be on hand for a book signing of his inspirational children’s book, “A Bad Penny Always Comes Back”, (telling the story of the very first Lancaster flown into Holland by Pilot Bob Upcott of Windsor, to “bomb” the countryside with food for the starving Dutch near the end of WWII) and will also be premiering his beautiful, 200 piece “Bad Penny Puzzle”. Partial proceeds from book and puzzle sales benefit the continued restoration of Windsor’s Bad Penny as well as the Windsor/Essex ALS Society.
Elaine Weeks and Chris Edwards of Walkerville Publishing, producers of “A Bad Penny Always Comes Back” and the “Bad Penny Puzzle” will have a book signing of their award winning volume, “Best of The Times,” a celebration of Windsor and area’s rich history. Partial proceeds will benefit the continued restoration of Windsor’s Bad Penny Lancaster.
This is a perfect family event
